Our own Harry Jacobs!!!

Our own Harry Jacobs wins US Lacrosse Award

Harry Jacobs Named Winner of US Lacrosse’s Homer Schwartz Award

Harry Jacobs, past president and current board member of the Long Island Metro Chapter, has been selected as this year’s winner of the US Lacrosse Homer R. Schwartz Chapter Leadership Award.

Created in 2014 to recognize a US Lacrosse chapter leader who embodies the qualities of passion and dedication that Homer provided as a longtime US Lacrosse chapter volunteer, Jacobs is the second honoree to receive the award.

Jacobs will be publicly recognized and receive the award in January at the 2016 US Lacrosse Convention in Baltimore.

Jacobs has served as a volunteer leader with the Long Island Metro Chapter for over 20 years and was nominated for the award by his fellow chapter board members. As part of the nomination, the chapter leaders wrote, “We could go on and on about the different things Harry does and has done to help our chapter, but to sum it up, he has made and continues to make a positive, measurable difference in a lot of lives in a number of ways, and he does it with a fun booming voice, a big smile and the largest, hardest working heart around.”

Dedication to the responsible development of lacrosse, passionate service for the sport, a spirit of collaboration and a commitment to good sportsmanship are all among the criteria for the award. In addition to service on numerous committees, Jacobs has been heavily involved in coordinating the chapter’s support for Wounded Warrior events.

“Harry is not about words, he is about doing,” said Andrea O’Connor, senior manager for membership and regional development at US Lacrosse. “Harry’s in perpetual motion with a tireless commitment in support of lacrosse. For 40 years, he has been a man who quietly leads the local lacrosse community through actions, not words, and always with a smile on his face. It is an honor and a privilege to work with Harry.”

Jacobs was selected as the award winner from among a strong candidate pool that included 14 nominations from 12 different chapters. The other nominees were:

Don Aiello - NorCal Chapter
Clark Bell - Michigan Chapter
Jeff Dreisbach - West Virginia Chapter
Cheryl Knudson - Nevada Chapter
Kevin McDonald - Eastern Mass Chapter
Michael Morse - Eastern Mass Chapter
Mark Mozier - Chesapeake Chapter
Peter O’Donnell - New Jersey North Chapter
John Poulton - Chesapeake Chapter
Eric Rudolph - Georgia Chapter
Nathan Snyder - Central Texas Chapter
Rick Suris - Long Island Metro Chapter
Blake Wahrlich - Montana Chapter

Homer Schwartz served as president of the Potomac Chapter of US Lacrosse for 14 years and passed away in 2012. Due in large measure to his enthusiastic leadership, selfless service and contagious love for the game, Potomac’s membership grew from 1,200 to 10,000 during his tenure.

2016 Memorial Day Flag Placement at LI National

All Recon Lacrosse Players, Parents, and friends,

 

THIS YEARS DATE FOR 2016 TO BE ANNOUNCED SOON!!!!!

 

Recon Lacrosse Community Service Opportunity on May 23rd, 2015 at the Long Island National Cemetery--2015 MEMORIAL DAY FLAG PLACEMENT.

Recon Lacrosse will be participating in the annual flag placement on Saturday, May 23, 2015, at the Long Island National Cemetery located at 2040 Wellwood Avenue in Farmingdale, NY starting at 7:00 am. Every player who can attend will be given a Community Service Letter from the Long Island Metro Chapter of US Lacrosse. Player’s will be asked to help place flags on the graves of our fallen heroes who have served our country as a way of saying “Thank you” for their service.

 

The Recon Lacrosse players, family, and friends will meet at the Comfort Station (Restrooms) at the end of Section 2L. Attached you will find a Map of the Cemetery and the location is right off Wellwood Ave. You can park along the roads in the cemetery by the Comfort Station. Directions to the cemetery are below.

 

Please let us know if you will attend so we can get a count. We will meet between 6:30 am and 6:45 am as we have to get started by 7:00 am. You will be finished by 9:00 am at the latest as every grave will have a flag on it  before 9:00 am with all the help that comes from the Boy Scouts and other groups like Recon Lacrosse. Also bring good gardening gloves. After placing many, many flags in the past the gloves make it much easier on your hands placing the flags into the ground.

 

Anyone who can attend is welcome! And you do not need to be a Recon player. A brother, sister, or friend can come help!.

 

And remember RANGERS LEAD THE WAY!!!!!!

 

Thank you,

        

      Steven, Paul & Harry

Recon Varsity Player gives back!!!!

Recon is very proud of our U17 Varsity Mountain Player Chris Callahan for his efforts to help our Heroes in Uniform over in Afghanistan!!! Since 2009 Chris has been working his project each year sending coffee packages to our men and women! This is really what it is all about!!! An Outstanding young man! Please see the article below:
 

 “Cup of Joe For G.I. Joe”
Founder: Christopher Callahan
2009

 
Countless people have asked me why a “coffee drive” for soldiers in Afghanistan when they get coffee for free? Not being a coffee drinker myself I have asked myself that same question. The coffee drive began over four years ago with a conversation with my cousin Edward Gibbons who at that time just completed his first military tour of Afghanistan. Ed was recent graduate of West Point and a person who I aspire to be like, I asked him, “What did he miss most when he is away from his home?” He said, “He misses his family and friends daily, but he missed morning coffee back home.” I probed a little bit more because I could not understand why coffee. The reason he missed coffee was that he associated coffee with the feeling of home. What he really missed was being away from home. I thought that if I can do something to help him from missing home it would be a great thing for me to get involved with. Managing a coffee drive would be my way of helping not just him but the group of people that he was serving with. That is how the coffee drive got started with a simple honest response of what I missed most serving in Afghanistan...
 
The drive took a lot of time to organize. At the time I was an 8th grader at South Side Middle School in Rockville Centre. I reached out to my social studies teacher Mrs. Beller who at that time was involved with the Wounded Warrior Organization. I submitted an outline to Ms. Beller and the administration of the school what my vision and mission of the coffee drive was. My vision statement is, “Recognize the district as the heart of learning, caring and support of the community”. My mission statement is, “Be The Best You Can Be”. The group thought the project was a good idea and we started the coffee drive.
 
Spreading the word of the drive was the easy part. I joined the Military History club in the middle school in 8th grade. The club helped to spread the word about the drive. I had fliers and posters printed that we hung them up around the school. I spoke at PTA meetings held at Covert School and South Side Middle School to spread the word. Our goal was to ship 100 pounds of coffee the first year. My family paid the shipping and packaging. I was responsible for packaging of the coffee. Needless to say the drive has been a huge success……….. Over the past four years our goals have gone up 100, 300, 500 pounds of coffee.  This year our goal is to ship 750 pounds of coffee. To date we have shipped well over 1,000 pounds of coffee to soldiers around the world.
 
Each year a different soldier is picked to have the coffee shipped to.  In turn that soldier shares the coffee with his unit.  In the past the soldiers have had a strong connection to lacrosse.  One was the captain of the West Point Lacrosse team and another was a player from Long Island who played for varies Long Island teams. Playing lacrosse and spreading the information about the drive to my teammates on South Side Lacrosse and RECON Lacrosse my summer travel team has been so beneficial to the drive. I love playing lacrosse but most importantly lacrosse has taught me to “pay it forward” and to help others. The feedback that I have gotten from the soldiers has been very rewarding. The drive has impacted my life as well as the lives of the soldiers in such a positive way and not to mention the community awareness.
 
The Coffee Drive is a huge undertaking, but it is well worth it. The drive has spread over three school districts, brownie troops, and private donations of coffee. The relationships I have made in the past four years are priceless. The sacrifices that the soldiers have made for my family and me will never be forgotten. Each one of these soldiers is a hero in my life.  I was once told, never under estimate the power of a good cup of coffee. 
 

God Bless America and our troops.
